Dear Read­ers,

We, at AAI, welcome the In­dian Mon­soon with open arms and hope In­dia has a nor­mal mon­soon this year. I am happy to share with you that with the in­au­gu­ra­tion of the new Ter­mi­nal Build­ing of Go­rakh­pur Air­port, we are see­ing tremen­dous growth from Go­rakh­pur Air­port and we ex­pect more flights from Go­rakh­pur as we are go­ing to in­crease the fa­cil­i­ties there.

The world is wit­ness­ing rapid growth in the aviation sec­tor and to cope up with fast pace of this growth, AAI, as a lead­ing air­port op­er­a­tor and the sole air nav­i­ga­tion ser­vice provider in In­dia, re­quires fast, ac­cu­rate and ad­vanced tools for the job of sim­u­la­tion. In this issue, we fea­ture Elec­tro Mag­netic Air­port Con­trol Sur­vey (EMACS) – the fu­tur­is­tic ap­proach to air nav­i­ga­tion. EMACS is an ad­vanced tool for the job of Ra­dio Con­verge and Sig­nal Anal­y­sis as­sess­ment of Com­mu­ni­ca­tion, Nav­i­ga­tion and Sur­veil­lance (CNS) fa­cil­i­ties.

In this issue, we talk about Jammu - the land of grand, an­cient tem­ples and beau­ti­ful palaces. With the con­sis­tent traf­fic growth at Jammu Air­port, the ex­ist­ing air­port in­fra­struc­ture needed a revamp and mod­i­fi­ca­tion. AAI took up the project for ex­pan­sion and mod­i­fi­ca­tion of ter­mi­nal build­ing of Jammu Air­port in the year 2013 and the new fa­cil­i­ties are soon to be in­au­gu­rated.

AAI’S ap­proach to­wards CSR and sus­tain­abil­ity is to em­power un­der-priv­i­leged com­mu­ni­ties near its air­ports so as to pro­mote an en­vi­ron­ment of in­clu­sive growth. Re­cently, as a part of CSR, a new school build­ing for Dum Dum Air­port Girls’ High School was in­au­gu­rated at Kolkata Air­port.

Mod­ern­iza­tion of air­ports and adding more air­ports is one of the key agenda of AAI. We are work­ing tire­lessly to­wards mak­ing our air­port fa­cil­i­ties world class by con­stantly up­grad­ing the in­fra­struc­ture and un­der­tak­ing new ini­tia­tives to meet the fu­ture re­quire­ments. We are com­mit­ted to make a pos­i­tive im­pact on the com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment.

In Au­gust, we cel­e­brate our In­de­pen­dence Day with pride and hap­pi­ness. Other ma­jor fes­ti­vals like Rak­sha Band­han and Jan­mash­tami are also cel­e­brated with a lot of fer­vour and joy in this month.

I wish all our fly­ers a very Happy In­de­pen­dence Day. I am sure the air trav­el­ers will en­joy our air­ports and con­tinue to travel through­out the coun­try.
